#TrackNigeria: One of the candidates of Accord Party in the upcoming general elections, Mrs Omotunde Sanuth, has appealed to Nigerians in their various capacities to create more enlightenment programmes
Sanuth told NAN on Monday: “that cancer is a disease that destroys the body tissues.”
She advised them to report any strange developments they observed in their bodies to the hospitals nearest to them for instant treatment instead of resulting into self-medication.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Sanuth will be representing Alimosho Constituency 2 in the Lagos State House of Assembly (LAHA) if she wins in the elections slated for March 2, 2019 in her constituency.
Sanuth said that there were many types of cancer such as: breast, prostate, colon, leukemia, lymphoma and lung cancers.
“Cancer is a deadly disease which can lead to loss of lives, most especially, in the third world countries,” she said.
She said that she lost her major role models, the late Prof Dorah Akunyili and late Prof. Abubakar Momoh to cancer.
NAN reports that Akunyili was a former Director-General (D-G) of NAFDAC as well as a former minister while Momoh was a don at the Lagos State University (LASU).
The candidate said that Nigerians could reduce the incidence of cancer by embarking on constant medical check-ups, maintaining healthy living, avoid smoking, and by eating vegetables and fruits.
She said if she should win, she would facilitate mobile health services across the 12 wards in her constituency for her people.
She promised to always invite medical doctors that would be offering regular health tips on how the public could prevent cancer and other related diseases. (NAN)
